Water Softener Mequon

Guthrie and Frey has been providing water softeners in Mequon since our start in 1974. As water flows to your home, it picks up contaminants along the way. These contaminants create hard water that can cause several concerns within your home. Water Softeners for Mequon provide solutions to provide your home with soft water.

Water Contaminants in Mequon

Mequon receives its water from the North Shore Water Commission and Milwaukee Waterworks. The water that flows into your home is sourced from rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells.

As water flows from through Mequon over the surface and underground, it picks up various forms of contaminants. Some are naturally occurring contaminants while others stem from human and animal activities. This includes agriculture and wildlife activity, sewage and septic, urban stormwater runoff, industrial processes, oil & gas production, and mining.

From the Senior Technician in Mequon:


How do I know if I have lead in my water?


You cannot see, taste, or smell lead in water. The only way to know if there is lead in your water is to have a professional water test performed.


How long should a water softener last?


Typically, water softeners last 15-20 years. If properly cared for and maintained you could potentially have your water softener for even longer!

What people are saying about Guthrie & Frey in Mequon

We had an iron filter system installed to remove the “rotten egg” smell from our well water which was more noticeable with the hot water than the cold. I called and they were there the same week. Installation was done quickly & very meticulously. The best part is that the unit did everything they said it would do and we have only clean, fresh smelling water every time. The unit can be paid for through a rent to own program that makes the choice to have it installed even better. We couldn’t be happier with the system or the people from Guthrie & Frey.
